Subject: RE: Whittlesey Straw Bear 2007
As far as I can gather Seven Champs did not turn up on the day.
There was trouble in town on saturday evening. I do not think there were any folkies involved but we will have to check with the land lords for the answers rather than rely on heresay. Yes, one of the pubs has trouble most evenings.
What is clear there will have to be discussion with the Police and the County Council regarding the future. Unfortunately we think the event will have to become more prescriptive if we are to avoid a repeat of 1909. You have probably seen the last Straw Bear in its present free and easy foremat.
